Elsie and Shorty Get S'mac'd for New Year's

New York City was the scene of a New Year’s S’mac Down, as Elsie and Shorty met up for lunch at Sarita’s Mac ‘n Cheese in the East Village. It was a gloomy old day, but two blog friends meeting for the first time brightened things up considerably.

First thing you should know: we talked about all of ya’. Yeah, we did. Were your ears burning? It was all good stuff, not to worry.

Over our Manchego (Elsie) and Cajun (Shorty) macaroni and cheese dishes, we got to know each other the old fashioned way – face-to-face. Don’t we look adorable?

And generous Elsie fulfilled one of my Christmas wishes by giving me – wait for it – a brand new Etch-a-Sketch! Woo-hoo! I’ve been doodling on it ever since I got home. I suspect it will cut into my blogging time. Hmm. Ooh! And also, Elsie presented my with a lovely bottle of Rhode Island Red.

Could a gal have a better New Year’s Day than that? Mac-and-cheese, Etch-a-Sketch, a bottle of red, and finally getting to meet Elsie. Perfect!
